Understanding Fugitive Dust: A Video All Your Customers Should See

Category:

Most property owners assume picking up trash translates to a clean parking area, but removing litter in plain sight is only part of the story.  Beneath visible debris, you’ll find dirt, road salt, and brake dust that wears out flooring and increases cleaning costs.  Keeping the inside of buildings clean is a good reason to sweep outside paved areas, but there is an equally important environmental consideration:  fugitive dust.  Microscopic particles of dried oil residue, pesticides / herbicides, and nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen are made airborne by breezes and the motion of passing cars, polluting our air and water.

We’ve created an informative multi-media presentation that our partners use on their websites and Facebook pages to explain fugitive dust and the environmental impact of professional parking lot sweeping.

Access to this video is just one benefit of the 1-800-SWEEPER partnership.  If you are interested in learning more about our organization, or wish to inquire about membership, please contact Carolyn Bell for additional information.
